Spots in Las Vegas that are a quick car ride or JetSuiteX trip away

 

Mon Ami Gabi at Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino

Located under the Eiffel Tower in the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, this landmark restaurant is as ideal for its location as it is for its French-trained chef, Chef Vincent Pouessel. The menu at Mon Ami Gabi is, of course, French fare  and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For breakfast, the selections are vast, including three eggs benedicts, and dinner is nothing less than perfect with creamy butter and freshly baked bread served in its signature bag. The country pate is a favorite and the French onion soup is a must-try. To top it off, the wine selection is one of the best on the strip.

Momofuku

The name Momofuku translates to lucky peach (thus the logo), and Chef David Chang—with restaurants in New York, Sydney, Toronto, Los Angeles and Las Vegas—brings the Korean flavors to a modern fusion level. Starters include spicy cucumbers and pork belly sliders and there are salads and plates like grilled striped bass with kimchi butter or the Denver steak with charred eggplant. With noodle and rice offerings you can add an egg to the dish to create a Korean “Bim Bim Bop.” Reservations are recommended.
